      Bio

      After Guns N' Roses he went back to Indiana and started recording the songs that ended up on his first solo album with his band the Ju Ju Hounds, Izzy Stradlin and the Ju Ju Hounds, released in 1992. The music was more laid back and simpler than the Illusions albums (Use Your Illusion I and II). They received fair reviews and went out on a world tour.

      In 1993 Izzy's replacement in GN'R, Gilby Clarke, hurt his wrist in a motorcycle accident and the band's upcoming European tour was in jeopardy. A quick solution was needed, and Izzy was able to fill the gap. However, after his tour obligations were met, he promptly returned to Indiana to take time away from the music industry. Izzy was promised to receive royalties he felt he was owed by the band in return for this.

      During these years off, he travelled a lot and dedicated much time to two strong interests: motors and racing. He even built a track close to his house. In 1998 Izzy returned to the music scene with his second solo album, 117°. As before, he had little interest in promoting the album — he agreed only to do a few interviews — and played few live performances. It turned out that it would be Izzy's last release on the Geffen label. In the big merge of the label into Dreamworks, Stradlin and many others were dropped (along with Duff McKagan). In 1999 his third solo album Ride On, a Japan-only album, was released on the Universal Victor label. This time Stradlin actually did a small tour in Japan as promotion. A fourth album called River came out in 2001, followed by On Down The Road in 2002.

      Several of his former bandmates asked him to join Velvet Revolver when it was in its formative stage but he declined due to his unwillingness to work with a lead singer, and his aversion to the life on the road.

      In 2003 Stradlin recorded his sixth album, Like A Dog. Several promo copies were made, but it was not released. Two years later, a petition was formed by Izzy fan Will Villiers to have the promo copies sold to Izzy's fans. The petition was very successful with over a thousand signatures. The maker of the petition, who also hosts a large Izzy fansite, was contacted by Stradlin. He had decided to release Like A Dog, selling them for $20 to his fans.

      In 2004, Izzy Stradlin and Duff McKagan, his former Guns N' Roses bandmate, appeared on the Mark Lanegan album Bubblegum.

      Izzy announced in early 2006 that he was considering releasing some tracks excluded from his albums among other things hidden away in his basement. He also stated a new album is near completion, and could be hitting shelves sometime soon.

      As with fellow former member of Guns N' Roses, Matt Sorum, it appears that Stradlin and Axl Rose have repaired their fractured friendship, as it was reported that Rose attended a birthday party held for Stradlin in New York.
